FiberOne Mixes copy

A few weeks ago, my friends at FiberOne asked me to come up with a few “mix in” ideas for their “30 mixes in 30 hours” event (Check it out on the FiberOne facebook page starting Monday.)

I don’t know about you, but I almost always have at least one box of cereal that’s about to go stale so this event struck me as a brilliant idea.  The three ideas that I came up with – spicy Thai party mix, Mexican hot chocolate bowls, and low-fat cannoli parfaits – are great ways to give new life to a box of cereal that you’ve gotten tired of. In fact, they might even inspire you to buy a new box just for making mixes – they’re that good!

Spicy Thai Party MIx “Mexican Hot Chocolate” Cereal Bowls Low Fat Cannoli Parfait

This Spicy Thai Party Mix was our favorite of the three mixes – Shawn actually declared it "the best thing ever!" If you don't have coconut oil, replace with it butter (or a butter spread) and add 2 Tablespoons shredded coconut in with the pineapple.
